Host a Celebration Dinner Party at home

Happy Spring, friends! I’m excited to share another fabulous dinner party plan with you on this first day of spring. This pink & gray tablescape with menu plan is specifically created for this transitional season. I combined the soft hues of pink with the deeper “cooler” tones of gray to represent the fact that this time of year is fraught with opposing temperatures and weather.

You’ll see how I designed a pretty table setting, added some fabulous details for special celebrations, and created the easiest diy party favors possible. You’re also going to get one of my favorite menus that’s sure to impress your guests, with links to recipes. See it all below and get ready to PIN some ideas!

Gorgeous Tablescape

Mix new treasures with old staples to create a beautiful tablescape for stylish entertaining.

I’ve always loved how gray pairs so well with warm colors like yellow, orange, and pink. Over Christmas I treated my self to several new sets of dishes including these gray dinner plates from Target, and the ‘marble-look’ salad plates from Walmart. I decided to pair them with an older table cover I had, and some pink details to design a tablescape that’s fitting for a celebratory dinner. Think birthdays, showers, or anniversaries, as well as spring holidays like Easter and Mother’s day.

For this pink & gray tablescape for a celebration dinner party I bought a single bouquet of pink roses and divided them among three small vases for the centerpiece. To fill in the table I added small bowls of snacks that go along with the cheese and salad course.

Flowers are more popular than ever for garnishing food and drinks. I got a couple of packs of edible flowers from Wegman’s and used them on the cheese board, in drinks, and to garnish the cake. If I had to pick a single trick of the trade that elevates a party, flower garnishes would be it.

PARTY TIP: Make your celebration dinner party extra special by garnishing drinks and food platters with edible flowers.

Since this is a celebration dinner party I made my diy ice bottle cooler with a twist. Instead of filling the water with decorative elements I tinted the water using food coloring. To go a step further, I did a darker tint for the bottom layer and leaned the mold slightly in the freezer to create a diagonal line. Once I added the top layer of water I let it freeze upright as usual. The final touch was to add a garland of greenery and spray roses to the neck and base. Place the cooler on a towel or napkin in a shallow dish and Rosé is served!

As I mentioned at the begining, I crafted the simplest of party favors. I add pink Himalayan sea salt to some small jars and tied a tag onto each one. Done and done!

Celebration dinner party menu

The menu for this pink & gray celebration dinner party is just as important as the tablescape. I’ve chosen some tried and true recipes that are sure to please your guests.

This easy menu includes the glorious cheese board you see above, spinach & orzo salad recipe found here, a main course of salmon with red pepper coulis, and sauteed brussels sprouts with bacon. And since I always say you don’t have to do everything from scratch, you can pick up a plain cake from the bakery and decorate it your self with fresh edible flowers. Make sure they’re non-toxic, or remove them completely before consuming the cake.

Okay, now you should be all set to host a spring celebration dinner party. Go ahead…what are you waiting for?!
